Tyga has removed his “Ay Caramba” music video following criticism over the clip’s offensive Mexican-American stereotypes.

On Thursday, Tyga went on Power 106 to apologize for the racist stereotype-filled “Ay Caramba” video after facing backlash from Latinos, specifically Mexicans, about the stereotypes portrayed in it. The video has also since been removed from YouTube.

I started seeing a lot of people offended on it and I was kind of confused, so that’s why I didn’t respond and took time … to do my research a little bit and tried to ask a lot of my friends that I grew up with that are Mexican [for their opinion],” he told the radio hosts.

On the new controversy, Tyga continued, “It’s hard because I grew up my whole life in Mexican culture being in LA, so it’s kind of hard to separate the two. But this video, I can understand. … It was meant to be a funny video but not make fun of… That’s what I want people to understand. This video was not to make fun of Mexican culture or Latin culture.”

The deleted video — which has been up on YouTube for more than a week and was only pulled down after the radio interview — saw Tyga in a fat suit playing a character named “Gordo” eating tortilla chips, driving a lowrider and effecting a fake accent. He also played the host of a TV dance competition show with a fake mustache and a dancer named “Spicy Rico.”

From the Mexican writer who criticized Tyga in a previous story: apology accepted. Let’s not let this happen again.
